The do’s and don’ts of rescuing a wild animal

Sierra Wildlife Rescue and other wildlife rescue and rehabbing organizations exist because the caring and compassionate public responds to an animal in distress, rescues it and calls us for help. We could not do what we do without the general public’s concern for the welfare of the animals, and we are eternally grateful to our rescuers. Often, however, well-meaning people don’t know exactly what to do when they find an animal in distress, or are unaware that a rescue organization is available to help them. The following “do’s and don’ts” may be helpful to rescuers.
